5 out of 5 stars Night climb with headlamp

Excellent way to try night climbing with headlamps. Tricky start, but it's like climbing a ladder after that.

5 out of 5 stars Not Cotton Candy, move about 4 right

Once again we are not able to properly name the route we climbed. We were looking for cotton candy, but wound up somewhere else. There were 4 nice routes near a crack about 4 climbs right of cotton candy. Left was about a 5.10. 3 groups climbed this. Middle was a dirty crack noboby was climbing. Then the route we climbed twice, had some bolts and top rope anchors. We failed to make it to the top on our own, some nice young lads lead it for us and once a top rope was set we both climbed it. Amazing what a little security will do. The route was noteworth because all of us had a tough time with the first 10 feet.
